Subject RE: [users@httpd] v100 memory problem
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2002 21:45:51 GMT
MaxSpareServers 50
MaxClients 150

This seem like relatively low numbers.  The system has 2g of memory, which
should be more than enough.  This servers function is serve out search
requests to people who use our search portal.  Other servers in this cluster
typically server out 15-20 thousand requests/day.  

Thanks

Steve

What is MaxSpareServers set to?  If you keep this fairly low, then 
apache will kill off processes that it no longer needs.

You should also set MaxClients to a number low enough that your server 
will never swap.
